An Exhibit of the Paintings of

Janet Pearlman

November 1—December 16, 2016

Weekdays, in the Frances Plecker Education Center, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


Painting by Janet Pearlman

Janet Pearlman paints landscapes to reach for the power to touch others. Her scenes of nature help the viewer evoke feelings of connectedness to relaxation and wholeness.

Janet began her painting auspiciously: in 1977 in serendipitous meetings, she was encouraged to paint by New York Times Art Critic, Harry Holtzman. From 1985—2002 she studied with Lena Marchi, Abstract Expressionist painter in MA; with Carla Mattioli, exploring the artistic approach of Rudolph Steiner using watercolor on wet, along with classes with others and much painting in both media.

In 2014 Janet deepened her skill with well-known local artist Isabelle Abbot in a class in Plein Air technique. Throughout the thirty-eight years of painting, she immersed herself in many and varied forms of inner development, developing her craft with paint as an expression of this vibrant inner life. Currently, she creates work in Crozet, VA, sells and shows through the area.

Please visit this exhibit to tune into the beauty and vitality that these pieces may bring forth.
